In Hawaii, the anthurium is known
colloquially as "little boy flower."
The anthurium, actually a wild native of Columbia's steamy tropical rain forests, was introduced to Hawaii by an English missionary, Samuel Damon in 1889. The plastic looking red heart shape is actually a leaf violated by a curved, knobby "phallus" (spadix, the flower).
An anthurium will last several weeks. However our anthurium will last decades. It does not wilt in the sun, nor shrivel up when it's not being rained on.
This representation of the original digital painting is deliberately smudged in a small area to frustrate pirating of the image.
All prints are personally signed and available in three sizes, each matted to fit a standard, ready-made frame.
See order form for sizes, prices and other details.
